My favourite memory of my mom is of her bent over piles of knitting furiously clicking away on knitting needles whilst simultaneously bossing me about and orchestrating dinner. My mom could knit just about anything within a matter of days – she had an innate ability to spot a pattern on television or on a person in a supermarket and could replicate it instantly (although v. embarrassing having to stalk someone with your mom while she memorises a knitting pattern). My sister and I were both taught how to knit but I am ashamed to say that I probably wouldn’t know how to do it now. Trawling through knitted items on the internet, I am now starting to feel like I might have lost a valuable skill. How about you? Do you/can you/ would you want to knit?
